We promote the go get it, kill it in every aspect of life attitude around here. We’re committed to being the best fathers, leaders, husbands and also being fit physically, mentally and socially. I’ve noticed at times that we can get wrapped up in this, after all its who we are, and there are times that you have to take a step back, laugh at life, and just run on auto pilot for a bit. Today I’ll speak about taking that needed time to recuperate and what you can do to recharge when you’ve been hustling your ass off. Continue reading “Remembering To Be Human”
Since we were married, my wife and I were on the same page as far as home schooling our kids. As the public schools become more corrupt, the home schooling alternative has become increasingly more popular. Since 1999, there has been a 75% increase to 2.04 million, or 4% of all k-12 students. As parents who home schools their children, we hope to offer some insight into why we do it, what are some of the costs and benefits, and what we do. Continue reading “Homeschooling 101”

Things like getting married and choosing to have kids with your wife are the easy things. The other things that you chose at these times are to be the leader at all times. You’re constantly under scrutiny, but at the same time, they all hold you to the highest regard in the first place, and if not, you’ve screwed something up.

While out at my kids soccer game this weekend, tensions were high. It was a playoff game and both teams were evenly matched. It went into a sudden death shootout and my kid’s team was defeated. It sucked for most parents to deal with this, but one guy in particular started raging and screaming, claiming we had been cheated. He was arguing with the official and his kids looked like they wanted to run away. It got me thinking about how as a father you set the tone that not only others see, but how your children and wife will fall in line. Today’s article will go over how you can be a good role model and leader in these situations.
